Forum: etree Subject: MD5 checksum failed

I'm also having trouble with checksums failing. Her'e what I get:

The following files had errors:
The following files were missing:
HBRSB2004-09-21d01t01.flac
HBRSB2004-09-21d01t02.flac
HBRSB2004-09-21d01t03.flac
HBRSB2004-09-21d01t04.flac
HBRSB2004-09-21d01t05.flac
HBRSB2004-09-21d01t06.flac
HBRSB2004-09-21d01t07.flac
HBRSB2004-09-21d01t08.flac
HBRSB2004-09-21d02t01.flac
HBRSB2004-09-21d02t02.flac
HBRSB2004-09-21d02t03.flac
HBRSB2004-09-21d02t04.flac
HBRSB2004-09-21d02t05.flac
HBRSB2004-09-21d02t06.flac
HBRSB2004-09-21d02t07.flac
HBRSB2004-09-21d02t08.flac
HBRSB2004-09-21d02t09.flac
HBRSB2004-09-21d02t10.flac
HBRSB2004-09-21d02t11.flac

The files are there, and the MD5 file checks out ok on my system. I even reuploaded all the flac files with a new md5 file....same result.

If all the files are failing, it's possible that you uploaded in ASCII format (i.e. as text) rather than binary format (i.e. as files) - check your FTP client settings. If that's the case, then unfortunately you'll have to upload them all again...

Can't imagine my transfer mode got changed, but stranger things have happened. I'll try uploading again.

They aren't failing, they're missing.

Check capital/lowercase letters and make sure they match. The filename in the MD5 has to match *EXACTLY* how the files are named on your machine.

Hm, same response I gave on the other copy of this thread http://www.archive.org/iathreads/post-view.php?id=24778
but from Alec's reply there I can only surmise that's not the problem?

Alec, how about this- is the .md5 file for sure within the same exact directory listing as the files themselves- files are not tucked in a subdir by mistake?

MD5 is looking for:

HBRSB2004-09-21d01t01.flac

Files are actually:

hbrsb2004-09-21d01t01.flac

That is the problem. When it doesn't find it, it lists it as "missing". Change the MD5 to match the filenames (case-sensitive) and they will no longer come back as missing.
